With the status and direction of Tropical Storm Nicholas in question, the Precinct 1 Constable’s Office believes that the threat of heavy rains and flooding are still possible for our area. The National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service has forecasted Tropical Strom Nicholas to make landfall sometime Monday Night. As the storm moves through our area on Tuesday and Wednesday we could face flooding in low-lying areas.
• Use today to finalize emergency preparations.
• Top off your vehicle’s gas tank.
• Make sure you have enough food and water for everyone in your household including pets for a minimum of 3 or 4 days.
• Tie down or store patio and garden items that could become hazardous projectiles.
• If you live on Lake Conroe, make sure you secure your boat even if it is on a boat lift. If we receive the projected rainfall lake levels could rise.
• If you intend to use a generator, make sure you have fuel to run it and are aware of all safety measures.
• Check your flashlights, weather radio, and any other electronics you might need, make sure they are in working order or that you have enough batteries.
• If you live in a flood-prone area now is the time to make preparations, you might want to think about staying with friends or family.
• Remember do not drive through high water; Constable Cash and TxDOT say” Turn around don’t drown”.
